Day 262 (day 3 / week 37)

This morning I got out early, walked 3 miles and then did some stretching and a cool down afterward (65 minutes, 603 calories).

I had planned on only doing this, because I am over my calories burned for the week (9948/8500) but ended up cleaning up little puppy messes in our Nevada room. I was surprised with the calorie burn involved with that--45 minutes, 431 calories--great workout. I am excited about all this extra calorie burnage, but am kicking myself at the same time because I am not eating enough. I am trying, but it's just really hard to get up to 2K calories for the day. *shrugs* I guess it's just like eating healthy. It's not going to happen over night, but it's got to be something that I strive for everyday. It will happen eventually, I just need to lay off of the extra exercises, which is so hard to do, becuase I love knowing that I am burning calories (but hate eating the food to back it--im not starving myself, im getting in 1600-1800 calories, i just have to try harder). I was talking with my brother-in-law and I think I need to start drinking protein shakes or something, to get those calories in, because that's ridiculous. Where else am I going to get those calories if I am full all the time?

I'm tired and am going to go to sleep now. I hope you all are having a great weekend. I'm gonna say it again, if you want to eat a lot of food or "eat whatever you want," all you gotta do is exercise to back it. Seriously. Burning 10K calories a week lets you (me) eat 2300-2600 calories a day! A DAY! I'm struggling to do this, because it is A LOT of food, if you didn't know. A lot of healthy food :).

Good night!

I can do this. I am a star.

We really like the protein shakes that Costco makes - they are just Kirkland chocolate shakes - they're pretty good and about 200 calories w/ little fat and 10g protein. Plus they are about half the price of slim-fast (I think actually about a third) and way yummier than making your own with protein powder.
